[February 04, 2010]  LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A judge in Las Vegas has found Michael Jackson's former doctor in default on a nearly $132,000 debt related to office medical equipment and services.

InsuranceDr. Conrad Murray failed to appear in Clark County District Court on Wednesday before Judge Michael Villani found him in default and awarded a judgment to Digirad Imaging Solutions.

Murray had no lawyer in the case. He has long-standing personal and professional debts, and faced near foreclosure last summer on his Las Vegas country club home.

Murray spokeswoman Miranda Sevcik says Murray was in Los Angeles on Wednesday, meeting with defense lawyers in case he is charged in Jackson's death.

Digirad attorney Nathan Gibbs told the judge that Murray has never appeared in the case. He'll tally interest since 2006 and submit a written final judgment for the judge's signature.
